Hey there! I’m Kate, the owner of Simple Pin Media.
So what is Simple Pin Media and who am I. Well, first, I started this company, Simple Pin Media, back in 2014 to help a few of my blogging friends utilize the power of Pinterest for their blogs. Since then it’s grown to a full-scale marketing agency serving over 120 clients with a team of almost 40! Pretty crazy huh?
I genuinely have a passion for helping bloggers/content creators and small business owners grow their business using Pinterest. The platform is amazing for traffic and lead generation but it can also be a little confusing. When I teach Pinterest marketing, I aim for it to be actionable, simple steps that help business owners move forward successfully instead of feeling overwhelmed. Aint’ nobody got time for that.
Throughout the last 5 years in Pinterest marketing, I’ve learned a vast amount about how to effectively market on Pinterest organically. It’s all about developing a smart keyword and image-based strategy that hooks the pinner in and encourages them to click over to your website.
I run Simple Pin from my She Shed in the garden. I even have a Pinterest board devoted to She Shed ideas. It’s peaceful to work from home when balancing three kids. My husband and I are passionate about running our businesses so they can release us to do great things that impact our community.
Simple Pin was started on a whim and a prayer than it could provide for a family financially when we were living off government assistance and $1000/month. That cannot sustain a family of five long term. You can listen to the entire Simple Pin story here. If you’re looking for social media management coaching I do that too!
You can read all about how I’ve built a successful team here.
I get asked to speak on Pinterest quite a bit and honestly, it’s one of my favorite activities. As an extrovert, I love meeting my community and chatting all about how to help them grow their business. I’ve spoken at Build Your Blog Conference, Indulge and Blended, SNAP and Social Media Marketing World as well as Activate, Everything Food, and FinCon. I love speaking about Pinterest and would love to help you at your next event.
I like sparkly drinks, fine cheese, and great friends. I believe in cultivating my offline community as well as my online community. It helps to keep me focused and grounded. Someone has to help me ‘call my crazy’ sometimes and allow me to watch how they use Pinterest.
My husband and kids are hilarious (12, 10 and 8 and a bonus foster child age 2 who will forever have my heart). The kids have no idea what it means for their parents to work traditional jobs and are constantly asking us why we are working all the time. We only work 30 hours a week, for what it’s worth.
I’m glad you’ve found me and I look forward to connecting with you on some level within the Simple Pin community!
